Today, I'll show two other editions of the book from Harvest House Publishers.
FIRST, A PICTORIAL RECAP:
1. The Self Published Edition
2. The Harvest House Edition
I loved this cover. The model captured Ariana perfectly.(Mr. Mornay, not!)
And here's the other editions from Harvest House (Yea, Harvest House! They were great to work with, by the way, and wonderful to do so many editions of the book. They've got great people over there. My editor, Nick Harrison, has moved on from being a Senior Editor with them to a literary agent with WordServe Literary.)
3. Large Print Edition
This is a hard back, beautiful version of the book.
4. Before the Season Ends--Russian Edition
There may be a book club edition also; I have a copy of the sequel in a hardcover book club edition, but couldn't find it for this one. (If YOU have a book club edition of Before the Season Ends, please send me a picture! Thank you.) There were also, of course, kindle, Nook, and EPub editions.
I have to say that getting letters from Russian readers was thrilling. Each one was incredibly SWEET. They seem to be the nicest people you could ever want to meet. (At least, the readers of historical romance are!)
I've been privileged and blessed with this book and its "metamorphoses."
THE NEWEST EDITION
Here's the latest Lilliput Press edition--newly revised and edited, with some new content added, a bonus recipe and bigger glossary. There's also a foreword from Nick Harrison, the editor who acquired the book for Harvest House.
The new imprint has been accepted into the Library of Congress and the LCCN# has now been added to the copyright page. (So excited about that!)
Next stop: Audible! (ACX) The cover is already prepared. :)
If you're published, do you have books that have gone through a metamorphosis? Self-pubbed to traditional? If it's a clean read, leave your links so we can take a look. Thanks!
Tip for Writers:
1. Do you have a book that is with a publisher but out of print? See if you can get the rights reverted back to you. (The conditions under which you can do this are probably in your contract.) By getting back the rights, you can edit your original work--if desired--and give a book new life! I've mentioned how Harvest House was so easy to work with. This was another instance where that was true. I had merely to send a letter requesting the rights to my three books with them, and I got them back. You will get legal documentation of this so that there is no question of copyright infringement when you re-publish.
